Second Semester Information:

We are grateful for the flexibility and hard work of ALL students, parents, and staff members as we approach second semester. The Florida Department of Education (FDOE) Commissioner’s Emergency Order has been extended to allow for a continued innovative (mySchool Online) model as well as the traditional on-campus model in second semester. We encourage you to please review your students progress and make sure they are being successful. If your child is NOT making adequate progress in the mySchool Online model, we strongly recommended he/she return to on-campus instruction for second semester. Adequate progress in Pasco County is defined through the linked Eligibility Criteria. For most students, the Traditional, on-campus learning model is the optimal educational setting due to:
  • a structured schedule;
  • in-person interactions with peers and caring adults; and
  • the various methods for teaching and learning
Again, if your student is not being successful through the on-line model, we are recommending that your child return to the Traditional model, on-campus for second semester beginning January 6, 2021.
If you are still planning for your child to continue in mySchool Online, you will need to:
  1. By December 18, 2020, acknowledge in your myStudent Parent Portal account that you will continue in mySchool Online or Pasco eSchool or you will need to meet with a school staff member and acknowledge in writing that you have been notified that your child is NOT making adequate progress. Click here for directions to submit the parent acknowledgement
  2. A plan for improvement will need to be developed.
  3. A review and acknowledgement of the associated educational risks of continuing in the present mySchool Online model.
  4. These educational risks may include: failing one or more courses, repeating a grade level and/or limiting post-secondary outcomes/scholarship opportunities and for middle and high school students placement at an alternative education center.

If you have any questions, please call or email Mrs. Kadlub.


Thank you!

Feeding Tampa Bay

Please note that our Mega Food Location and Time has changed starting October 29, 2020!


My name is Kate, and I'm from Feeding Tampa Bay.


Feeding Tampa Bay, part of the national Feeding America network, focuses on providing food to the hundreds of thousands of food insecure families in the 10-county area of West Central Florida. I wanted to share with you a volunteer opportunity for students looking to complete volunteer service hours for future scholarships. I noticed that you are the main contact for the PTSA and thought that your members may be interested in this service opportunity.


Every Thursday afternoon from 3-6:30pm is our weekly Pasco Mega Pantry, and we are in great need of volunteers! This event takes place right across from PHS at Burks Memorial Park.


It would be amazing if you were able to share this information with your students looking for volunteer opportunities! I have attached a graphic below with information on the pantry.


Sign up happens here on our website or if you'd like to sign up a group, send me an email and I'll get you registered!


If you have any questions at all or are interested in partnering on future events please don't hesitate to reach me at kscaglione@feedingamericatampabay.org.


I hope to hear from you soon!
